Sweetwater Creek Park - We will start at the visitors center and hike various trails (white, red, yellow, orange, brown, blue) for about a 11 mile hike. Estimated time about 4 hours though may be slightly under/over.
We will hike at a steady moderate pace with a few water/snack breaks. THere is some elevation at Sweetwater but we will take any uphills slow - there is one extended killer incline on the yellow trail - it isn't very steep but it did seem to go on forever. We will be hiking at a moderate pace - not super fast, not slow.
$5.00 fee for parking pass unless you have an annual GA State Parks pass
